Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® Examines Xait
Tune into Fox Business Network on Sunday, May 29, 2016 and Bloomberg International on Sunday, June 12, 2016 and watch Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® as host Kathy Ireland speaks with Owe Lie-Bjelland, CEO of Xait, about his Norway-based company’s flagship product, XaitPorter.
Lie-Bjelland opens the interview by explaining some of the problems with traditional file-based data collaboration methods. One of the primary limitations, he says, is the inherent inefficiency of relying on conventional document software. This approach requires workers to do their own numbering, chase each other down for information, and do their own filing — time and effort that could be more wisely spent elsewhere.
The CEO adds that conventional word processors seek to emulate old-fashioned typewriter documents rather than provide optimal access to, and manipulation of, the information those documents contain. Traditional word processing software opens the door to serious concerns about data sharing security.
By contrast, explains Lie-Bjelland, XaitPorter is built from the ground up to provide an ideal mix or efficiency, quality, and security right “out of the box.” The single-source document engine allows multiple employees to work on the same document at the same time, increasing productivity and lowering costs. Since the document information is stored directly in the database instead of being isolated within files, the engine can take care of many functions that previously sapped workers’ precious time. XaitPorter offers automated formatting and numbering, with built-in review and approval processes. The products centralized approach also vastly increases security.
Lie-Bjelland states that XaitPorter came about after BP approached them, frustrated with the hassles of using Microsoft Word for their data collaboration processes. Since that time, Xait has partnered with such major names and Oracle and Salesforce.com.
“Xait has created a solution that can benefit any business seeking more efficient and secure collaboration. This makes them an exciting discovery for the business leaders in our audience,” says JL Haber, Vice President of Programming of Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®.
